Implementation of the E-Z Pass Toll Collection System (Follow-Up Review)

In 1993, the Thruway Authority began to operate an electronic toll collection system known as E-Z pass in order to reduce traffic congestion at toll collection stations during peak periods. In our prior audit report 96-S-18, we examined the performance of the system.

In our follow-up review, we found that such actions have been taken by Authority officials.
